Jason Collins stay in the NBA looks likely to be extended, according to reports today.

The 35-year old signed a 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets on February 23. and became the league's first openly gay player in doing so.

And with that deal set to expire Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski revealed that Collins is set to re-sign with the franchise on another 10-day deal.

Wednesday will be the earliest this deal can be complete.

Collins has had considerable media coverage since his return to the league, with his #98 jersey (chosen in honor of Matthew Shepard) the most sought-after jersey in the NBA in recent days.

All proceeds from the sales are going to LGBT charities on the player's request.

He has played in the last four Nets games, helping the team to three wins in the process, and scored his first points for the Nets with a 3-pointer against the Denver Nuggets on February 27.

He is expected to feature in his first home with the Nets against the Chicago Bulls tomorrow.
